Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

The lens need to be replaced or repaired. It is not fully extending. It may be that one or more of the plastic gears or plastic rods that hold the gears in place, are broken. I repaired two plastic rods in my lens, by drilling holes for new plastic rods,(I cut plastic rods from a plastic toilet bowl chain!!! It fit inside the gears perfectly), and super glue the rods in place. Replaced gears, put camera back together and BAM in worked! Nothing like a perfectly working refurbished rig job. Camera takes great pictures to this day.

Hi there
Possibly not, try another camera lead in a different USB port.
If its the same format the camera card and try again, if you still get the same result, the camera is faulty.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Use a card reader instead of the camera to download to a folder you create on your desktop.

MY Olympus fe-170 has a broker screen, how can I get my pictures off of my camera?


Connect this to your computer via USB ..and wait.
Then press OK button on the camrea onece (this will "blindly" accept connection to the PC MODE)..
In a few seconds you will have a Removable Drive available in My Computer folder (Windows) or you will see iut on the desktop (Mac) ... Copy your pictures out of the DCIM folder to your computer ;-) ..
Or .. replace a screen ... I have a "parts-out" FE-170 with a good screen - easy to replace ... write back if you want it kriscichon@hotrmail.com

I recieved an Olympus digital camera for my birthday ,a FE-170/X-760. It is supposed to have a USB cable included, it does not. How can I optain one?


They can be purchases at Walmart, Kmart, Radio Shack, etc. They are pretty generic...the plug that goes into your camera is the only difference...take your camera with you to get the correct size.

I have a olympus fe-170 a got from a friend i would like to print


Make sure the camera is on and pc is selected on the camera screen when connected to the computer. You will need to have PC highlighted and select ok on the camera as this starts the camera and computer to communicate. Once communication established the LCD screen of the camera goes dark and the computer should generate a removable disk drive. Check the System Tray (lower right corner beside the PC time) for Safely Remove Hardware. When you click on it, it should read "Safely Remove USB Mass Storage Device Drive ?:" If you dont see that, then check the Device Manager to see if the camera is recognized as USB Mass Storage Device. The camera uses the driver usbstor.
